for the decisions he's taking. and steve stocktop throwing out the impeachment word, what's the swell like in washington, d.c. with people throwing around that word, based on, you know, executive orders that have been put in place before by president clinton and by president bush 41 that did not get reaction like this? >> thomas, i these you're seeing a lot of rhetoric coming from very conservative parts of the republican party. this is not something you hear from congressional leaders like speaker boehner or senate leader mitch mcconnell. this is something that's coming very much from the right. but it does underscore the problem that president obama is going to have and that is that no matter what kind of ground swell he puts forward from the grass roots, it's going to be very difficult to convince house that's controlled by republicans that they need to move on this. what he would need to do is he needs to move those moderate republicans and we saw this happening with the sandy aid where he didn't put the sandy relief bill on the floor, moderate republicans like peter king from new york
